Marching On Together

Marching On Together I have had a romance with a lady since my childhood just like thousands of other people around the world who are also in love with her. I have remained in love with her through the many bad times and the few good times, my love for her has never faltered and never will. My lady's name is Leeds United and she is just five games away from returning to the English Football Premiership, after sixteen years in the football wilderness. In the sixties, seventies and early nineties my lady was known as "Super Leeds," however in 2003, my love was relegated from the English Football Premiership due to financial miss-handling by her owners. "Super Leeds," dropped down to the third tier of English football. If Leeds United can grab ten points from their last five games my lady will be back where she belongs in the higher echelons of English football and I can once more embrace my love with happiness.

Leeds 5 v 0 Stoke, 7 points needed from 4 games...

Indonesia's Mount Bromo, East Java evacuation after increased seismic activity

Indonesia's National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) has urged people to vacate an area stretching across a radius of 2.5km from the crater of Mount Bromo, East Java - which is seeing increasing volcanic activity, Indonesia's Antara news agency reports.
"As the alert status has been raised, the people living around Bromo and tourists/climbers are not allowed to enter the area, covering a radius of 2.5km from the active crater of Mount Bromo," said head of data and information and public relations of BNPB Sutopo Purwo Nugroho in a statement today.
Tourists are not allowed to visit sites around the peak of Bromo or the sea of sand.
Nugroho said PVMBG had established the level of activity at Mount Bromo as rising from Level II (alert) to Level III (standby) as of 6am today.
The determination was based on observations and analyses of seismic data, visual aids, and the potential danger of eruption.
Despite the increase in the standby status, Nugroho believed tourists would still want to visit Bromo. An eruption at the site could be utilised as a tourist attraction, especially for those who wish to see the beauty of the eruption, with smoke flowing out of the crater.
Although Bromo is on standby status, he noted, people around the peak should remain calm and should not enter the danger zone near the active crater.
The BNPB will continue to coordinate with PVMBG, the Disaster Management Agency (BPBD) of East Java Province, the BPBD of Probolinggo, the BPBD of Malang, and the BPBD of Pasuruan in anticipation of activity on Bromo. Since Sept 1-25, a monitoring team recorded continuous earthquake tremors, with maximum amplitude fluctuation ranging from 0.5 to 23 mm (dominant 1-3mm), earthquake gusts, shallow volcanic earthquakes and major volcanic earthquakes near the area.
